Digital Equipment Corporation and Bristol Technology have announced that they are working together on bringing Microsoft's distributed object technology DCOM to OpenVMS.
Bristol develops Wind/U, an implementation of the Windows API that runs on top of other operating systems such as Solaris, HP/UX, OS/390 and OpenVMS. As a part of Wind/U, Bristol already ships a version of Microsoft COM on top of OpenVMS. Bristol will now help Digital port DCOM, the distributed version of COM, to OpenVMS.
